It makes no sense that a “special JLF” would be built for the Mad Catz TE sticks.
Why would Sanwa, which pinches money as tightly as Hori, manufacture “special edition” JLF’s just for one manufacturer let alone an American company like Mad Catz?
I’ve taken my Mad Catz TE apart to replace the square gate with a GT-Y and also have redone the stick tension a few times on top of painting the top base bevel after it got scratched a bit.
Nothing I have seen in that stick indicates it’s anything but a standard JLF and I’ve installed 5 “third party” JLF’s in other bases, too.
If there is anything consistently different amongst the various stick bases that utilize the JLF’s, it’s the stick mounting. I’ve noticed the JLF does sit a bit lower in the Mad Catz TE base than it does in the HRAP bases but that’s about it. Even the T5 stick mount is different than the HRAP stick mount… The T5 mount doesn’t have the necessary diameter or clearance to use the secondary dust washer beneath the faceplate.
